Drawing a Blank

9th Annual Graduate Conference
Hosted by Comparative Literature, Spanish and Theory & Criticism
The University of Western Ontario:University College 225
London, Ontario, Canada

March 22-24, 2007

The conference rediscovers the discursive significance of forgetting: its connections to forgiveness and cultural memory, the formation of truth and institutionalization, expression and suppression. We shall explore the implications of forgetting, the strenuous desire to avoid forgetting, and the gaps left by forgetting.
